3. Delivery and collection

3.1 Our standard delivery times are between 7am and 7pm and our standard collection times are between 12pm (noon) and 9pm.
3.2 For bookings with a later finishing time than our standard collection times we offer an overnight service (which may incur an additional charge, this is at the discretion of Jolly Jumpers) Overnight hires are limited and on a strict first come first served basis so should be booked when making the initial booking
3.3 All services and equipment booked will be delivered, inspected and set up on site by our delivery team. Once set up, the client or representative acting on their behalf must then sign for the delivery by signing our Terms, Conditions and Disclaimer form.
3.4 By signing for the equipment or service, the client or representative acting on their behalf are confirming that they are happy with the equipment, location and service and that everything has been left in full working order and is fit for purpose
3.5 Once the equipment has been signed for any breakages, damages, losses, theft (including overnight) will then be liable by the client to the full value for either repair or replacement
3.6 In the event that you are unhappy with any of the equipment or services provided then please make your delivery driver aware and do not sign for any of the equipment until you are happy with the resolution offered by the company. Once the equipment has been signed for, you are signing to confirm that you are happy and that any claim made after will not be accepted nor any refund offered
3.7 Please ensure you have adequate entrance points in regards to size for the equipment you are hiring. Some of our equipment such as larger inflatables require at least a 1m access point or may even need our delivery driver to drive direct on to the site and installation point
3.8 The client must not refuse the collection of equipment for any reason
3.9 All company items and equipment are left in the responsibility and care of the client from the time they are delivered until the time they are collected. If collection is delayed for any reason the client is still responsible until the items are collected
3.10 Our delivery driver has strict and tight delivery schedules so need to be able to commence set up of our equipment straight away once on site.
3.11 As we offer an overnight hire service this sometimes means that our equipment can be collected and then delivered either wet or dirty. This may mean the equipment is then cleaned or wiped down on site at the next delivery or to be left to dry. Please allow at least two hours before your event for this just in case

4. Delays/breakdowns

4.1 All delivery and collection times are approximate and the company will always try its best to ensure our delivery driver runs on time and within their delivery time slots; however, due to situations and issues outside of the companies control such as traffic problems, delays at previous deliveries, vehicle breakdowns, etc. the company will not be held responsible or liable for any losses or costs incurred by yourselves or any forms of additional compensation
4.2 In the event of any mechanical breakdown or breakdown of equipment either before or during your event preventing or limiting us to fulfill our contracted obligations, our liability shall be limited to a pro rata refund of any monies paid in relation to the contracted item or equipment which we are unable to provide. Any refund will be related to the specific item at fault and not the booking as a whole. This also includes generator failure, only being limited to the cost of the generator affected and not the use of any of the items to which it is due to power. The company highly recommends the use of additional back-up generators or back up power sources
4.3 All breakdowns and faults must be reported to the company as soon as possible via phone by the client and the equipment should not be used from the discovery of the fault until the client is told it is safe to do so by the company. The company will then dispatch, where possible, someone to inspect the fault, provide a replacement subject to availability, and aim to fix or replaced within two hours of reporting the fault. Any reduction of our fee is at the discretion of the company

6.5 It is the client’s responsibility to inform the delivery driver prior to the start if delivery if any underground services present on site.
